OREGON – A benefit for Oregon firefighter Thomas Jones, 25, burned Aug. 20 in an explosion and fire, will be held from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday at the Oregon VFW, 1310 W. Washington St./state Route 64.

Pulled pork sandwiches and chips will be served, and there will be a deejay and dancing, a silent auction, a gun raffle and a 50/50 raffle. One of the prizes is a John Deere snowblower.
